Jane Baxter

General Manager

Jane Baxter

I’m an experienced Home Manager with over 30 years’ experience in the care sector.

I decided to join Sway Place because of Care UK’s values and reputation. I hold the Registered Manager’s Award, and Diplomas in Heath and Social Care at Levels 2, 3 and 4.

My favourite part of the day is when I do my rounds – engaging with residents, colleagues and visitors. I also love joining in with activities when I can.

In my spare time, I enjoy walking, especially on the coast, spending time with family and friends, and gardening.

Lorren Nolan
Deputy Manager

From the moment I first came for an interview at Sway Place, I had a good feeling about the home. I loved the teamwork I could see, and the progression opportunities looked great. I joined the team in 2019, but I’ve worked in the care industry for 14 years.

The best part of each day is seeing the residents – they're what I’m here for! Being made Deputy Manager was the highlight of my career so far. In this role, you need to be patient, respect others, have good computer skills and be level-headed. Ensuring that Sway Place is a home away from home for residents with plenty of activities for all is my main priority.

Outside of work, you’ll usually find me spending time with my family, gaming or reading.

Laura Blake
Home Admissions Advisor

I started my journey here when the home first opened in 2008. As a previous Team Leader I have supported residents through their personal journeys to live their lives to the fullest and I am dedicated to making a positive difference to the residents we care for. I have welcomed many residents and their families into our beautiful home. Now as Home Admissions Advisor I am dedicated to making a positive difference at what can be an emotional time for residents and their loved ones. Every effort goes into enhancing and enriching the lives of  residents here and ensuring that they find the right care solution that is bespoke to them. It is a privilege to be part of the amazing team here and seeing the residents flourish and fulfilled. I look forward to welcoming you to our home.

Alan Bell
Head Chef

Working at Sway Place is my first role in a care home, but my background in private aviation preparing high quality balanced meals means I have excellent knowledge and skills for this role. Having also collaborated with Champney's Health Spa, I know how important the nutrition in our diets is.

One of the best parts of the role is having the interaction with the lovely residents, being able to find out exactly what they like, so I can design and create dishes that they will enjoy. It has a real family feel here at Sway Place and I love being part of a fantastic, dedicated team at Care UK.

Emma Buckle
Head of Administration

I have been at the home since 2007. As Head of Administration, I oversee the entire administrative function within the home including leadership of the reception team, HR and payroll, and billing. My team and I are committed to delivering the highest standard of customer service at all times.

Debra Corrigan

I joined Sway Place to be part of a great team of people. Before this, I was working in an activity centre for disabled children.

In my role, it’s important to be friendly and a good communicator. You need to have social skills to build relationships with residents and their families. It’s also important to be organised, empathetic and able to multitask and problem solve.

I love that every day here is different, and I’m proud to be the first person to greet friends and family into the home and give them the friendly and professional Sway Place welcome. I enjoy working with our team of compassionate, caring people.

When I’m not at work, I enjoy walking, mountain biking and gardening.

Samantha Collins
Head Housekeeper

I have worked within the care environment for 14 years and chose to move to Sway Place because of the lovely location and good feedback from the team at the home. I was very happy to be promoted from ‘Housekeeper’ to ‘Head Housekeeper’ in 2021.

In my role you have to have a good eye for detail and a high standard of cleaning. Dedication to providing the best housekeeping service for all the residents is key.

I really enjoy spending time with all the lovely residents and getting to know their individual personalities.

Our hardworking teams always keep individuals and their families at the heart of the care they provide.

The nurses at Care UK are highly skilled and receive sector-leading training, which enables them to keep developing expertise in different clinical fields from dementia to palliative care.


Our dedicated lifestyle teams work hard to organise a range of activities and events at our home. From gardening and baking to quizzes, music sessions and even live entertainment. Above all, we get to know your loved one to make sure our activities are tailored to suit their interests and hobbies.

Home support roles

From catering to maintenance, housekeeping to administration, our home support teams play a crucial part in ensuring individuals enjoy an exceptional and safe service every day.

All our teams get to know each person they care for to ensure they provide a service that’s designed around their unique needs and tastes.
